Donald Robinson Hill
His memorial lists a Ruth Nitschke Campbell as his spouse. She does have presence at Florida Memorial Garden , but associated with another soul, probably her subsequent husband.(Colonel Robert J Campbell 1918-1989).

So wherever you got the info that Donald Robinson Hill was interred at Florida Memorial, they need to do a bit more research because he is not there under that name. Maybe the originator of the memorial, Hungrycoyote” (Member # 48940094) needs a touch.

RE: Rudolph H Nordlund
Hey,

I am having difficulty getting the picture to size right for the memorial page. If you click on the picture it will show up in the actual size. Any assistance you can offer will be greatly appreciated.

I purchased this photo from ebay and plan to donate it to either a local history museum or the National WW2 Museum.

Thanks!

Joe

Lt George Goddard and his crew #4429616
George and his crew have been remembered and honored by the Czech villagers for 70 years. Memorials have been dedicated at the crash site for their fallen airmen.

Their World War 2 story was chronicled in the book; "Miss Fortune's Last Mission" by William J. Boyce/John H. Torrison with John DeMers (Bright Sky Press)

www.missfortuneslastmission.com for more information, photos and videos.

I hope that you will add this information to their Find A Grave page. Bill, John, and some of the crew's families visit their grave on Memorial Day 2015. I would be happy to sent you a copy of our book. Thank you

1st Lt. Joseph Herick from Cuyahoga County, OH
You have certainly been busy with your virtual cemeteries ...

There is an interesting story on the internet about "The Last Voyage of the Amatsukaze", a Japanese destroyer which was attacked by US B25s on 5 April 1945. {see https://airwarworldwar2.wordpress.com/2016/01/22/the-last-voyage-of-the-amatsukaze/ ]

During the attack, 1st Lt Joseph Herick [Find-A-Grave #56765224] of the 500th Bombardment Squadron was killed when his plane was shot down.

I didn't see Lt Herick's name listed on your Ohio virtual cemetery. 'Thought I'd pass it along.

DOG TAG FOUND IN HAWAII
thank you for responding John, I will send you a picture of it and here is the information you requested...

Shane a lady reached out to me she found this 44th BG fliers dog tag on a beach she wants to try to find descendants to give it to any help?
FORREST E. BARTAY
384L0822
It was found on the beach in Hawaii. Sand Island beach park on August 12, 2016.

I did look up his name and I did not see any surviving next of kin, so I just want to have it go to someone and someplace that it will be valued and appreciated. And maybe this dogtag might have a bigger story than meets the eye, so I am also curious but don't know how to look it up.

If you would like me to send it to you, I can surely do that. I would ask if you would kindly share any interested facts that you find so that I can have stories to tell the grandkids.

RE: Charles Steinbach
The Find A Grave volunteers have a very good relationship with the woman who runs the office and the grounds keepers. If she is not talking to a family member she always takes the time to look up our requests. They are all on computer by name. I came in with ten requests this week and she had info on seven. I'll keep Charles Steinbach in my notes and maybe we'll find it someday.

Newspaper article about "FindAGrave"
On Monday, 8 August 2016, the Philadelphia Inquirer newspaper published an excellent story about a FindAGrave volunteer, and others.
I would like to send you a copy. It covers parts of 2 pages, with color photographs.

How can I get this to you?

You were the one who located my first cousin, Gordon F Anderson's grave in Golden Gate National Cemetery. Thank you again.

RE: WWII KIA's
Here is a virtual cemetery for the men who's name is inscribed on the memorial in Mt. Ephraim:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=vcsr&GSvcid=651390

One man, James Busey was accidentally added. Actually, his father, Samuel was inscribed on the memorial as he lived in Mt. Ephraim and was the point of contact for his son. Somehow things got mixed up. James was from the Washington D.C. area.

I also wrote and posted stories for several of these men on Facebook:
https://www.facebook.com/jeffvilardo/posts/10207910776239909

and one more that I posted later on:
https://www.facebook.com/jeffvilardo/posts/10208032605845573

I have tried to put together a life story of sorts for each person and post it on Facebook on the anniversary of their death. Still a work in progress.

Regards,
Jeff Vilardo

"Hello
You have 1 for Gate Of Heaven in Pennsylvania. Do you mean Gate Of Heaven in Hanover, New Jersey ?. I have been there several times.

ShaneO, it's not a memorial that I created but you added the application for the gravestone, but is it the right location, please? Regards, Martin.

RE: Arthur Nixon group
Good Morning Shane!!
I added the photo to the Gudger memorial. Do you think I should add the picture to the others while the older photo is still there?
As a curiosity, do you see my photos upright or sideways? I see them all upright on whatever device I am using, but I've been told some of them appear sideways to others.
Hope you are well! :-) A
